Known history this extremely rare 250 Grand Prix (only two were built) was designed by Francesco Villa the brother of world champion Walter Villa. During the 60's & 70's Francesco Villa was a motorcycle manufacturer and the Villa 50 & 125 cc race bikes were ever present on the tracks. In 1968 he decided to build a 250 4 cylinder with rotary distribution.

The FIM then banned from Grand Prix machines with more than two cylinders and this bike never raced and further development was halted.
